Particulate Matter and Related Pollutants in a Changing World

EPA awarded 13 grants for research to provide critical scientific information to address continuing challenges to protecting the air we breathe -- now and into the future -- with consideration of potential future policies, changes in emissions from natural and manmade sources, and variations in weather patterns. This research will help better protect human health and the environment by producing more complete understanding and more accurate information regarding impacts of changing manmade emissions.
